Synopsis

A genre film, except that it isn’t clear what genre we are dealing with. Mark Ther presents one of his aesthetic images which seek the possible expressions of homosexual identity. He is provocative, humorous and open. His play on cliché leads one to ask: is this about homosexuality, or about the way other people view it? The film is presented as part of the series Loyal Guard: New Czech Videoart.

About the director

Mark Ther (b. 1977) creates objects and installations, and has been working primarily with video in recent years. The theme of his works are conceived in such a way that they defy a simple interpretation. His videos might appear as pseudo-advertising spots or pseudo-realistic, almost comic stories. Ther states: “My favourites include Garfield, Der Grüne Punkt, Andy Warhol and Maria Callas, and I’m also interested in flies, Japan, used chewing gum and pet hairs.” Ther’s work was presented at the Rotterdam IFF in 2007.
